    All I got was a link to the survey you did a while back. I question the validity of calling it anything else, since there were no real controls, it's admittedly subjective and it's not quantitative.

    My remark in this thread was intentionally flippant. I don't think you'll be selling too many IBT's to SCI's as we pretty much think it's FOS.

    Sounds more like all sorts of excuses for not doing a real scientific study. Anecdotal evidence is worth nothing!

    Tilting a bed to make use of gravity is something NASA have been doing since the early 90's. I would consider their opinion as being worthwhile, especially when they go to the trouble of publishing their conclusions and thoughts. Yes I know you are going to think of all sorts of excuses to ignore this research as much as you will ignore the effects that gravity has upon the circulation, which is your choice and I respect that. But using your bias and poor understanding of physiology to try to discourage people with spinal cord injury from considering that gravity and posture can help people with neurological conditions to regain function and sensation is deplorable. Nevertheless, I hope you enjoy watching the videos. There are more interesting videos on her channel.
